Splashing Paint

Today I got out my paints and splashed away to my heart’s content.  I find that when I do that with no particular goal in mind my soul feels joyous and I feel as if I have grown.

I kept on splashing, this time over an abandoned watercolour pencil drawing I did last year right at the beginning of my blogging journey for the fff challenge. As most of you are experiencing spring I decided to splash on the colours of spring.

Today, I could not see anything wrong with it; it was just me being a perfectionist!  I see in my journal lots of pages I have abandoned and redid because I thought they were “wrong”!  Blogging has changed me.  I am not so critical of myself now.  So my goal now is go back to these pages and redo them, perhaps one a week. The quote is a lesson learned.
